on the reaction to these figures, we have rob doddson with us. rob, welcome. it appears ta stronger services may be weaker on the manufacturing relative to expectations, at least, but the message broadly is still contraction. >> that's the case. we're seeing the pmi indexes track a bit higher over the last few months. so nothing spectacular there. but this does raise hopes that maybe we could see growth coming into the first quarter. the eu, banking -- things like nap but, again, still down. >> not great news for france if we start to look at some of the indexes. there's a lot of focus on this economy. >> exactly. and the weakest spots, given that it's the second largest economy. now, we did see that return to growth for germany, which is a positive and will be a good gain forward. but say order box, very weak. demand, very weak. business confidence very weak and this is going to be hitting activity indicators going forward. >> even though the manufacturing side of it disappointed, the services was stronger. while services is a big part of the economy, it's where we're trying to see the rebalanc

two of my one on one interview with blackrock president rob kapito, coming up later on "power lunch." here is a quick preview of what he has it say about the state of investing. >> what i'm really worried about more than the fiscal cliff is that it's taking attention from investors to actually invest. so you can't invest for the future in the future. almost every asset class has a positive return p th year. so if you sat on the sideline, worried about the fiscal cliff, sitting in cash, in your bank account, you've left double-digit returns and the equity market, high single digit returns across many fixed income products and commodity products. so there you go. another year has been wasted because you're so focused on what's going on in washington and you should be very focused on your own pocketbook right now. and invest now and not wait for the future. >> but if you had done that as well, you have to be in the right spots. >> and you have to be in it -- in it for the long-term, right? allocate, stick to the plan and be in it for the long-term. and he is absolutely correct. but you
